Issue 498 – Faith and Prayer History

I only look to the gracious protection of that Divine Being whose strengthening support I humbly solicit, and whom I fervently pray to look down upon us all. May it be among the dispensations of His providence to bless our beloved country with honors and length of days. May her ways be ways of pleasantness and all her paths be peace.

– President Martin Van Buren
Inaugural Address, March 4, 1837
